WASHED OUT’s highly anticipated sophomore album Paracosm is set for release on August 12th, and earlier this morning he released the official lyric video for the single “It Feels All Right”. Although I’m still reluctant to embrace the “lyric video” as a worthy art form (are these people too lazy to make a real one?), I will take what I can get from WASHED OUT — whom I adore — and shut the hell up. For all things WASHED OUT be sure to follow him on Facebook, Twitter, and visit his home page at WASHEDOUT.net. And not to be outdone is London duo XANDER THE GREAT who just released their terrific debut mixtape entitled Caves And Clouds a matter of hours ago. As Disco Naivete notes: “The ‘UK version of The Weeknd’ comparison can no longer be made, as XTGR have definitely found their own, dark and broody, drum-driven r&b-based sound without reminding us of Abel’s falsetto.” You can follow XANDER THE GREAT on XANDERTHEGREAT.com, Facebook, and Soundcloud.
